The Lady Hamlet

Join us on Wednesday, June 25th for a staged reading of THE LADY HAMLET. The playwright, Sarah Schulman, will be joining us for a Talkback following the reading.


Two artists, both born to play Hamlet, also happened to be born women. With 1920s New York City as their sparring field, they engage in a war of wits that leaves their colleagues and lovers caught in the crossfire. Buddies teams up with WorldPride 2014 Toronto to present a reading of this new work by renowned writer and thinker Sarah Schulman, who will also be in attendance.
